I is for...

...Isabel, who turned five. Five! She's so grown up.

She planned her own "surprise" party. She picked out the cupcakes and decorations. Then she told us all to hide behind the couch and jump out and surprise her when she came into the room. We spent the afternoon getting group manicures while she dazzled the entire salon staff.

...and Indigo, my new favorite color. I don't think I can ever give up plum, but I've been crazy about that deep, tattooish blue. I chose indigo for my manicure and I knit this simple skirt with deep, dark blue kitchen cotton. It's swingy and ruffled. I feel like a five year old when I wear it because I am so delighted by the girly-swirlyness of it.

Sounds like you all had a good time. Isabel sounds like quite the little planner.

Yay for girly swishy skirts!

(Are those worms on Isabel's cupcakes? I think those are worms...)

I love the worms! Happy Birthday Isabel.
